Adam bombs: Blinded by quest to make reality match Dems’ 2016 narrative, Rep. Schiff got reeled in by Russian pranksters

Well, so far there’s far more evidence that Rep. Adam Schiff and the Dems were unwittingly dabbling in colluding with Russians to help bring Trump down than there is of Trump colluding with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton:

The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee was the victim of a prank phone call by Russian comedians who offered to give him ‘compromising’ dirt on Donald Trump – including nude photos of the president and a Russian reality show star.

DailyMail.com can disclose that after the prank, his staff engaged in correspondence with what they thought was a Ukrainian politician to try to obtain the ‘classified’ material promised on the call.

On an audio recording of the prank call posted online, Adam Schiff can be heard discussing the committee’s Russia investigation and increasingly bizarre allegations about Trump with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.

The call, made a year ago, was actually from two Russian comedians nicknamed ‘Vovan’ and ‘Lexus’ who have become notorious for their phony calls to high-ranking American officials and celebrities, including UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Elton John.

Schiff’s office now claims he was suspicious about the claims but at the time there’s no way the Resistance’s chief Russia/Trump collusion conspiracy theorist didn’t have a woody the size of the U.S. Capitol dome:

Schiff’s office said the congressman suspected the call was ‘bogus’ from the beginning and reported it to authorities afterward.

But in a recording of the eight minute conversation, Schiff appeared to take the call seriously – or at least played along convincingly – and emails from the Democrat’s staff to the fake politician afterwards said he had found it ‘productive’.

Imagine how depressed Schiff was to find out he’d been duped. By Russians.

Here’s one of the phone calls. Actually, the biggest prankster on this recording is one-man clown show Schiff:

Schiff basically spent a lot of time being toyed with by the Ukranian equivalents of Sacha Baron Cohen because he’s so desperate to make reality match the Democrats’ invented narrative.

Here’s a five-second audio summary of all of Schiff’s attempts to prove collusion so far:
